Buying Your Encore Semi-Estate Home In West Springs, Calgary 

While many existing Encore residents have custom-built their homes, new buyers in West Grove Estates have more options. Buying an existing home remains the easier option in West Springs. Procuring a home this way comes with two major benefits: 

Convenience: Some people do not want to spend any energy working with a builder to design and build their Encore house; they just want to move into a quality home with a well-kept front lawn and landscaped backyard as quickly as possible. If this is something you can relate to, buying a home is the best option. You should be able to move into your Encore semi-estate home within one or two months of your purchase. 

Value for money: Constructed by the same award-winner builder, all our homes一custom-built or not一represent the best of what Calgary housing has to offer in terms of function and style. In other words, our homes for sale are just as good as our custom builds while being generally more affordable. This is especially true considering you have more room to negotiate when buying directly from a homeowner. 

No real drawback exists when buying an Encore semi-estate home with Bri-mor Developments. Unlike in other neighbourhoods, all the homes for sale in our community have been built recently. You are unlikely to come across problems associated with old houses, such as obsolete appliances and high energy costs, when choosing one of our products. Buying a well-maintained existing home from Bri-mor Developments constitutes an excellent lifestyle and financial decision.  

Building Your Encore Semi-Estate Home In West Springs, Calgary 

While building your home is, on average, more expensive than buying one, the opportunity to recreate the residence of your dreams is often worth the tradeoff. Some people are so enamoured with the prospect of designing their own home that they are willing to wait for their completely bespoke home to be built. 

The benefits of building your home extend beyond the privilege of selecting its features and appearance. These include:

No competition: The real estate market can be quite competitive at times. The hottest commodities often have multiple buyers angling for the best price. Not only does this process add a lot of pressure, you may not get the home you want at the end. Building your home, on the other hand, bypasses this issue completely. That plot of land on which your home is being built is yours alone. 

Saving money on renovations: Because you can customize your home the way you want, you probably will not have to do any renovations anytime soon. If no existing house on the market meets your unique design aesthetic or lifestyle needs, you may want to build one to your liking instead of buying one and then spending thousands on renovations. 

As for disadvantages, no real cons come to mind aside from larger expenses and longer wait times. Creeping construction costs and extended delays are a rarity when you partner with Cedarglen Homes. Having won consecutive awards in the past decade for their exceptional customer experience, Cedarglen Homes is one of the most trustworthy builders in the region.
